Textual Criticism Colloquium

There has been a Colloquium on the Textual Criticism of the New Testament in Birmingham over the last few days. I have not been able to get to the colloquium so far but plan today to be at the entire day's events and it looks pretty interesting. Here are the details:

I hope to report back later.

Update (Thursday, 09.04): Michael Theophilos asks if the papers are currently available or if they will be published somewhere. As far as I know, there are currently no plans to publish. And I am afraid that they are not currently available either. In fact none of the speakers sent me their papers in advance so I had to do my response "on the hoof". More on the colloquium, with pictures, later.
